Reader comment on item: Obama's Pretend Counterterrorism Policy
in response to reader comment: Brilliant Obama

Submitted by Amin Riaz (United Kingdom), Sep 5, 2011 at 00:40

lets see. Ussama was assassinated by the Obama administration. however violent Islamism lives on, and is now part and parcel of state power (Gaza, Turkey, Iran, Lebanon)

Really? So what is it that Obama could have done. Lebanon was violent before Obama. Iran - go figure was always strange ... long before Obama. Gaza - is not a state but was vilolent DUE to actions of Areil Sharon. Turkey is not violent.

Wrong on all counts.

Bush mess. Not only isnt he clearing it up. He is augmenting it to the nth degree, on all fronts. Unemployment higher, debt deeper, multi-front war in disarray and defeat, terrorism and unpheaval up

So you agree bush mess. Unemployment and debt are a much larger and Western problem. Which losing war ...? And terrorism - Obamas fault - that is new one on me.

Handling of Arab insurrection against dictators: In each and every case violent Islamism is gaining the upper hand, Egypt, Yemen, Libya, and coming up, Syria. Brilliant, if you are an violent islamism sympathizer

Again - wrong on all counts

Finally and unsaid, terrific loss of face vis-a-vis the Jewish leader Netanyahu. Never has a president been the recipient of such a public dressing-down, later reaffirmed by both houses, as delivered in the Oval Office in May 2011. That's because the President is clueless about the true affinities of his own constituency, mistaking his own towering personality for policy. If policy is non-sensical in the end someone, in this case Bibi, will tell the proponent of that policy he is dead-wrong.

What - from a tiny unimportant and unsiginifact little country. Whose role has been blown to unimagianble proportions. Due to an excellent andbrilliant propganda and lobbying machine. If USA cut ties - it would be so much better of financially. And whole host of other headaches.

And it had to come to this. Israel - only thing that matters to some.

Oh let me just check which website this is ...... oh yeah dear me! I though it was huffington post. How silly!
